"Plagued with problems"1.0 starson by eastcoastlizzie
Pros: I can fit 7 people in this SUV
Cons: It has been plagued with repairs
Summary: Here is some of the service history for this car:
3 shocks replaced, 2 computers replaced, both batteries replaced, link rods seized, main console replaced, rear windows repaired, driver window repaired, sensors faulty, scalloping on all sets of tires, rear hatch lock drained battery- took 3 mos to diagnose and fix while car lost power overnight,
transmission clunking (apparently it was a programming problem), trunk latch broke AGAIN, trailer hitch lost all power
Mercedes has said there are no suspension problems now that they have fixed the seized link rods but they still cannot explain why all sets of tires have had to be replaced due to scalloping. The service technician said the shifting in the car felt like it was being hit from behind (clunking) and has now fixed it. Given the issues with the suspension and the transmission I have asked MB to extend the warranty at no charge. Needless to say we have experienced expense and inconvenience due to all the problems and we thought that would be a reasonable resolution. MB has refused. I hope to get rid of it.
